Q Can I get hard pan­niers for my 2006 CBR600F?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I have Givi soft pan­niers on my 2006 Honda CBR600F but they are begin­ning to show signs of age. I would like to up­grade to hard pan­niers but I’m not sure which ones to go for to en­sure I get the cor­rect fit­ting brack­ets for my bike. My bud­get is £350-£400. John Weir, email

An­swered by Si­mon Weir, RIDE magazine There are plenty of top­boxes avail­able, but we can’t find any­one of­fer­ing a hard-pan­nier fit­ting kit for a 2006 CBR600F – though both Givi and Kappa of­fer one for a 2011-13 model. But the back ends of the two bikes are fun­da­men­tally dif­fer­ent so it would take more than just bolt­ing it on and hop­ing it can be bent to fit. How­ever, if you fancy your met­al­work skills, we’d look at the Kappa sys­tem as the KLX1102 fit­ting kit at £146.66 is one of the more af­ford­able racks. We’ve seen the pan­niers dis­counted to £199.99, which would bring the whole lot in for the £350 bud­get… un­less you have to pay a lo­cal fab­ri­ca­tor to do the mod­i­fy­ing work for you.
